Mirmire means The Dawn
During the peopleâ€™s war we had 5 Radio transmission center from east to west. The first Radio transmission was established in the main base are- the libreted area Rolpa. It was named as Peopleâ€™s Radio- â€˜Radio Peopleâ€™s Republicâ€™. Radio Mirmire was the continuation of Radio Peopleâ€™s Republic.
Some party activists and journalists loyal to PrachandÂ faction have lootedÂ Radio Transmitter and computers from RadioÂ Mirmire Station, based in Anamnagar, Kathmandu.This was the Radio run by Newa State Committee-UCPN(Maoist). Most of the journalists and staffs of this RadioÂ are the supporter ofÂ National integration and peopleâ€™s revolution, who had joined theÂ ten years Peopleâ€™s War.
Â Staffs ofÂ Radio Mirmire told that a group of activists led byÂ staff Bishnu Prasad Sapkota barged into the station office at Anamnagar at around 11:30 pm and took away the computers and the transmitter.
Bishnu Sapkota, who was a cultural activists during the peopleâ€™s war nowÂ named asÂ Â aÂ gang leader of stealing the Radio equipments. Â What a matter of shame! He is the nephew of AgniÂ Prasad Sapkota PBM of UCPN (Maoist), one of the main leaders of Prachanda camp, who supports Prachanda blindly.
